I Couldn’t Grow Real Plants So I Made These Paper Ones

It all started because I wanted a fiddle leaf fig tree in our very dark living room. I knew a live one would never survive so I made one using paper, paper mache, wood dowels, and paint. It was rewarding and fun to make!

It has been a challenge and a treat to discover what other plants I can craft out of paper. I am a lifelong “tree hugger” and crafter. I’ve always enjoyed being in nature and by making plants, I am combining two of my big loves. Because I live in NYC, I spend a lot of time at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden searching for inspiration and admiring all the plants – plants that would never survive in my apartment. So, if I see something I like, I make it with paper.
